After a year of on an off development and tons of help from this wonderful community, I'm ready to post my first design project, and move onto building my first set.

After the release of Kaladesh and Amonkhet, I have added some new plane cards and have removed some others. Nothing too radical (I wanted to play it safe so the release is good).

The largest change is the redesign of Vessifrus and the Elemental deck, which had many conflicting themes.'

Without further adeu...

Set Statistics -

• 40 Original Plane Cards/Phenomenon Cards

• 4 60 -Card Decks meant to be played together. Each will have a very distinct theme.

10 Original Cards inserted in each deck meant for eternal format and (more so) fun.

The Decks

"Starry Nights" -- White mana symbol/Black mana symbol Enchantments. Heliod and Erebos are secretly BFFs. Homeplane - Theros

Really like those planes A happy smile

Karakyk Valley and Evos Isle have some issues, though. As they possess static abilities (rather than triggered ones) linked to your creatures' power, layers matter for them. And this means they work rather unintuitive, sadly. The issue is: Granting a creature abilities is handled in layer 6, whereas effects altering a creature's power (or toughness) are handled in layer 7 (so they are not considered earlier). This means power-changing auras, equipments, spells or whatever will not matter for your two planes' abilities..
